What our graduates say about Trinity:

"My greatest fear when entering college was feeling lost in the crowd. I don't feel lost! I feel known, listened to, and empowered to pursue my passions and continue my education. I believe Trinity Lutheran College recognizes the value and diversity home educated students bring to campus. My advice to prospective students would be to apply, show Trinity your unique talents and dreams, receive Trinity's generous scholarships, then be prepared for a fantastic college experience."
-Rachel Preston, homeschooler and current Trinity student majoring in Music

“First and foremost, the idea of a small community was important to me. I’ve found that I learn really well in a smaller class where my professor can spend more time with me. At Trinity, I have become an important part of the community, not just a shadowy figure wandering from class to class.”
- Lance Green, Class of 2011, Theology major
